The new Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac is now available, offering Windows virtualization that boots 41 percent faster and offers 3D graphics that run 30 percent faster than before. The new Parallels Desktop 6 boosts speeds when working with files on USB drives, networks and in shared folders. The update packs more than 80 new and enhanced features, and the company has declared it the "best Windows on Mac experience yet.
CNet shows the new iPod Nano 6th generation:
The good: The iPod Nano (sixth generation) is nearly half the size of the previous model, uses unique multitouch screen navigation, and includes a built-in clip.
The bad: Many features have disappeared, including video playback, camcorder, microphone, speaker, games, calendar, contacts, notes, and alarm clock. The touch-screen interface is overkill, requiring more attention than the time-tested click wheel design without delivering many practical benefits.
The bottom line: The sixth generation of the iPod Nano is the smallest yet, but it comes at the expense of valuable features and practical controls.

Motorola has taken out yet another full page ad in the New York Times, this time making fun of the iPhone's lack of Flash. The ad reads: "Flash Websites? There's a phone for that. Introducing the new Droid 2 by Motorola." This is obviously a play on the "There's an App for that" slogan used by Apple.
Don't have an approved Apple device to watch today's keynote? Here is a live video from Apple's event on September 1st for everyone.
The quality is not very good, but still a good solution for PC users:
Here are the latest news from Apple PR - they will live broadcast their event today:
Apple will broadcast its September 1 event online using Apple’s industry-leading HTTP Live Streaming, which is based on open standards.

The iPod touch 4G is most probably going to change its shape. The back of the device will be neither flat glass, like for the iPhone 4, nor is it going to be a curved surface, like a dome.

Familiar. Think of the top of a MacBook Pro, only smaller, which is to say flat rather than curved at the center—closer to the look of the first-generation iPod touch’s back, only with modifications. The rear camera is there, but there is still some question as to whether what’s next to it will be a LED flash like the one in the iPhone 4, or a microphone like the one next to the video camera of the iPod nano. We’ve been told to expect a microphone rather than a flash, with a continuation of the bottom-mounted headphone port and Dock Connector port.
The new iPod touch is going to be announced at the Special Event on September 1st.
As stated previously, case images for the upcoming iPod nano have leaked on the Internet, and they show that it is going to be a very small square device with a touchscreen.
The cases for the next generation of iPod touch and iPod nano models were manufactured by a Chinese company X-Doria, and the images were obtained from a Chinese website.
